*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 42731 ***

I filled a similar bug report and I can tell you its not related to
multihead support.

99% of the computers you buy retail come with integrated graphics cards.
When you install a dedicated gfx card it automatically disables the
onboard graphics card.  There is no option to disable the onboard gfx
because it is already being overrided by the dedicated gfx card

Xorg/ linux still detects that disabled card even though its not
functional at all. Other distributions actually get it right.  Ubuntu
since warty has been getting it wrong ever since,  it could be just
debian in general.

This not for or about MULTIHEAD support.

6.06-rc initial X configure picked wrong graphics card
